How to shoot reportage-style portraits

Speaker: Kong Chong Yew

Portraits of subjects in their natural surroundings often make for a more interesting photo. These environmental portraits can offer more insight into their character and personality, and be used to convey more information about the subject. Learn how to engage and communicate with your subjects effectively, as photographer Kong Chong Yew shares his experience working in the editorial and commercial industry. This talk is held in conjunction with Objectifs’ Shooting Home Youth Awards 2016 programme.
